Speech by Connie Hedegaard at the occasion of the European Parliament's vote to cut CO2 emissions from vans
Strasbourg, 15 February 2011
Mr President, Honourable Members,
First of all, I would like to congratulate the Rapporteur Mr CALLANAN and the shadow-Rapporteurs on their efforts in reaching agreement on the Commission proposal on light commercial vehicles. In the aftermath of the economic downturn, these discussions were indeed difficult.
